Clemson junior cornerback Mario Goodrich will undergo a “minor scope” to his ankle Friday, a Clemson official confirmed.

The surgery was first reported by Clemson247.

Goodrich was slowed late last season by an ankle injury, and it kept him out of a few of Clemson’s nine practices this spring.

Goodrich is expected to compete for a starting cornerback job opposite of Derion Kendrick this fall. Last year, Goodrich, a 6-foot, 190-pound Kansas City, Mo., native, had one interception and seven total tackles.
